Far too often I hear people saying that that eating healthy is too expensive, but what about having a heart attack, diabetes or cancer? All of these diseases are taking a toll on Americans lives and their bank accounts. The biggest problem is that every day we are bombarded with marketing strategies that make us think we want big juicy burgers, fried foods, processed sugar and caffeine. Then when you go the store with the intention to make healthy choices, but everything cheaper and more convenient is over processed, packed with sodium and sugar.
Everything that we eat either fights or fuels disease, EVERYTHING. We have companies that spend billions of dollars on research to find cures and others that spend billions on masking the truth. We need to focus on prevention and this starts with a healthy balanced diet. Anything that has a label is processed, we need to be teaching our kids how to read food labels rather than how to navigate Facebook.
